Developing youth in your community

Parents Voice

Parent’s voice was established in 2015 as a way of supporting parents/Carers in regard to spotting the signs of risky behaviour. Significant changes were made in 2017, after evaluation the introduction of a boundaries and Transition session as well as support around social media were developed.

This was to help support Parents/ Carers as their Children transition through life from primary to secondary and from child to adolescent. Helping the understanding of cultural differences for Parents/ Carers who find themselves in a western society as well as those Parents/Carers who try to get to grips with social media.

Supporting parents understanding of significant changes our children will go through emotionally and physically as they grow.

Our facilitators come from an academic and grassroots background with 20+ years’ experience of working with children and families from diverse and cultural backgrounds pan London.
